Article note: Oh shit, this is the closest to "The Internet is broken" I've seen in a while. I just spent half an hour nervously trying to figure out why my webserver and house weren't talking, discovered that if I went through an intermediary they could, _then_ checked the news. Looks like CenturyLink (formerly Level3) is closing routes but leaving them in their BGP tables, so lots of traffic is going on dead routes through the backbones.
